Rust Comes to Riverside

Iowa City - "What happens to the people who make things...when we stop making things.

Working Group Theatre and writer Austin Bunn spent two years interviewing displaced workers at a Michigan auto plant. The result is Rust: A Documentary Play.

The play was written by Bunn and WGT Artistic Director Sean Christopher Lewis and features a cast of local actors including Kristy Hartsgrove, Martin Andrews, Luis Sierra, Kevin Moore, Matthew James, and Jess Wilson.

Featured in the New York Times Magazine and named in the Huffington Post as an influential protest play, don't miss your chance to see Working Group Theatre present Rust: A Documentary Play to their hometown audience."

Rust runs at Riverside from November 9 - 18. Tickets range from $15-$20 and are on sale through the Riverside Theatre Box Office at 319-338-7672. Rust is presented as part of Working Group Theatre's ongoing residency at Riverside Theatre, Iowa City's resident professional theatre. To find out more, visit WGT's webiste.
